Last year Chanukah, my son insisted one night that he needed to have donuts for supper. I’d planned pizza, but he just wasn’t going for it. Not one to argue with a three year old, I compromised instead and created “pizza donuts.” This year, the donuts got an upgrade with a delicious and super-convincing garlic glaze!
Yield: About 4 pizzas

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Roll out strips of dough, about three inches by 11 inches.
Combine sauce and cheese and spread about one finger’s width in the center of each strip.
Fold each pizza lengthwise, being sure to seal tightly along the entire edge. Shape into donuts, leaving plenty of room in the center for dough to rise.
Bake for 15 minutes or until fully cooked through.
In a small saucepan, gently heat oil, garlic, and salt until fragrant.
Add flour, whisking until there are no lumps.
Gradually add milk, stirring constantly. If desired, turn up the flame to accelerate the thickening process. The sauce will be done when it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Remove pizza donuts from the oven.
Using dairy tongs, carefully dip each donut into the pot with sauce.
To add a second color, add gravy booster to bring the garlic sauce to the desired shade.
